THE GOOD LIFE AND THE GREAT WORK: AN EXPERIENTIAL INQUIRY
What Its All About: This program is about stepping away from everyday life for a season to give yourself the gift of expansive time and tranquil space to reflect on what may be the most important question of all: what counts as the good life? Its about taking big strides toward discernment of what will be your great work in this good life.
Courses Like These: Its about taking courses with titles like these: “The Alchemy of the Self”, “The Understory: Hidden Narratives of Human Thriving”, “Ecology of the American Buddha”, “Living the Good Life: Back to the Land Spirituality From Walden to the Tiny Life”, “Practice and Metapractice”, “Transcendentalism and Pragmatism for the 21st Century”.
Academics Anew: Its about an approach to rigorous academics that takes account of the whole person. We’ll think with our bodies (in canoes, in trees, in gardens); we’ll exercise our minds like muscles in the resistance training of big ideas and contemplative practices. Its about academic study that is grounded in immersive experiences of natural beauty & the sublime. Its about an academic setting that cultivates experiences of awe & wonder & existential joy.
